“The origin of all music is emotion and its authenticity makes the difference.”
Christoph Zirngibl is a multiple award winning and successful German film score composer. His outstanding talent was already evident while studying film scoring (2003-2007) under the professors Enjott Schneider and Andreas Weidinger at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München (University of Music and Theater, Munich). Since then he has been composing music for numerous TV and film productions. He attended master classes in Los Angeles and Spain held by Michael Giacchino, Patrick Doyle and Steven Scott Smalley. In the meantime he has composed over 60 scores, among them the music for successful films such as "Neues vom WiXXer" (The VeXXer), "Vorstadtkrokodile 3" (Crocodiles: all for one) and the Emmy award winning American documentary "Iowa's World War II Stories". This young composer’s extraordinary success is due to, among other things, his mastery of an ample variety of musical styles. His many orchestra arrangements demonstrate a deep understanding of orchestral and dramatic composition. His particularly multifaceted style and his vast emotional variety allow his music to reach the audience and to get under their skin. His other works in genres like Country, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Songwriting and even Big Band music are just as technically adept and well accomplished. Christoph Zirngibl takes advantage of his personal extensive experience as a musician, for example, drum and piano lessons from childhood, playing as a professional drummer for the German army band, music teaching studies, and as a live musician in different Pop, Country, Soul and Funk bands. One can hear that for Christoph Zirngibl the foundation of all his music is his emotional sensibility; it is the authenticity of his music that makes the difference. He is flexible not only in his command of musical genres and styles, but also in his great creativity and adaptability as well as his capacity to produce compositions in short periods of time.
